Workshops & Activities

Vikings and Valkyries

Part of London Literature Festival

Go on an adventure through classic Icelandic sagas and discover how the legendary Völsung warriors came to be. Lose yourself in the magic and escapism of this puppet and live action show featuring heroes, magic, a mythical wolf, and Mr William Morris himself.

Inspired by the 13th century Icelandic Völsunga saga, William Morris translated and adapted this prose to bring it to new audiences in the form of an 1876 epic poem (over 10,000 lines) rich in Norse mythology. This original performance by E17 Puppet Project explores the characters and stories in new and exciting ways for families to discover and enjoy.

E17 Puppet Project is a travelling theatre company producing professional children’s theatre, creating original interactive shows using rod puppetry, object manipulation and physical theatre to introduce young audiences to complex narratives.
